Microsoft has presented Surface 3

The rumors of a new tablet from the Surface family have been circulating in the network for weeks, which is getting better and better every year. This moment has just arrived and Microsoft has unveiled Surface 4 with Windows and many useful applications.

The early Surface tablets were not very successful mainly due to poor technical specifications and poor Windows RT. Microsoft, however, was quick to learn from its mistakes, and more models were already refined, and the operating system also changed.

Now the company has announced the latest generation of its product, Surface 3, which already includes Windows 8.1, many well-known applications from personal computers, and one year subscription to Office 365. We will even offer a model with 4G LTE connectivity, which will greatly increase the functionality of the device.

Surface 3 is made from the same high quality materials as the Surface Pro 3. The device is only 8.7 mm thick and weighs 0.62 kg. In this thin case, a 10.8-inch touch screen display has a 3: 2 aspect ratio, and on the other side there is a stand that allows it to be placed in a comfortable position that can be retracted when it is no longer needed.

The tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor, one of the most powerful Atom available in the market. However, the manufacturer does not disclose the amount of RAM, as well as the usable memory.

However, the specification of the devices installed in the device was given. The rear has a resolution of 8 megapixels and autofocus while the front 3.5 megapixels. Both allow you to record movies at 1080p resolution. The product also has a 13W charger that will charge the battery much faster, but of course you will also be able to use a standard charger for your phone. The device also has a USB 3.0 port, microSD card slot and Mini DisplayPort input.

Surface 3 runs on a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1, and for business clients it has Windows Pro. Of course, it will also be possible to upgrade to Windows 10 when it becomes available. The use of a standard operating system enabled the use of popular applications for work, learning, and entertainment, as it will also be able to run computer games.

32 GB of memory in the Surface due to windows

We have already seen the official pricing for each version of the new Microsoft tablet and probably many of you are curious why there is no version with 16 GB of usable memory. The answer to this question is very simple.

The reason for the lack of a 16 GB version of Surface is the operating system. Windows RT along with Office, takes up as much as 12 times more space than competitive iOS. Translating this to numbers tells us that the system needs as much as 12 GB of space and this is an official message, confirmed by hardware designers.

So, you can see that the 16GB version of the tablet would not be racist, since the user would have left at most 4 GB. That’s why the cheapest version of the tablet is a 32GB version, costing $ 499, which is a variant of the Touch Cover.

In the 32GB variant of the tablet, the user will have 20 GB of free space available, as the rest will be used for the entire mass of applications offered by the new operating system. Apple solved this issue a little better and on its 16 GB iPad, as much as 14 GB of memory is available to the user.

But we are more interested in whether all of these applications will be useful enough to encourage the consumer to purchase a new device.
